Autumn Issues

Over at Paper Issues the new theme is 'Thankful for Fall'. Go and check out all the amazing inspiration and link up your own stuff too!
Since Autumn is my absolute favourite season....
I have created the background with my Tattered Angels mists then made some layers down the right side with patterned papers, a photo, and the lovely Tim Holtz Distress Stains (gotta lurve the way you can 'splotch' these!)
Thanks for dropping by, hope you are having a wonderful day :-)

This one didn't make the cut...

This month over at the Tattered Angels blog we are playing with stencils, masks, and templates, my favourite misty play! I have done so many projects that I had to cull a few from the final post and so this one got the chop because I ended up covering most of the masked area with the photo. I have used a Prima mask on the background with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and the TA Iron Works Screen as a stamp down the right side of the page. TA Chalkboard mist on dark brown card with Scrapware circles as a mask make up the photo mat. Finished off with Prima flowers and bling, Pink Paislee artisan element, alpha and patterned paper circles.
Thanks so much for dropping by, be sure to head on over to the Tattered Angels blog and have a squizz, you may even want to put in a submission for their DT call which is open until the 16th of this month, but be quick!

Kiss your loved ones

A car accident claimed a life near to us the other day. So many lives will be affected by the loss.
Remember to kiss those close to you and show them daily how much you love them, life can be so short.

A page to honour one I love....

October was the month for Color Kits over at the Tattered Angels blog, there are so many to choose from, and all so different, they really take the headache out of colour-matching. I had the 'Rustic Barn' one available to me and although I would normally add a different colour to a mix like this I thought I'd challenge myself and use only what's in the box. I love the results I got!
This is the girly page I did, I also did a grungey boy page and a mini album, if you pop over here you can see them too :-)

Tattered Prima Loveliness

September over at the Tattered Angels Blog was full of Prima goodness so I got misty with my Prima Favourites clampack from Tattered Angels. These packs are tried and tested for matching beauty and make creating sooo easy!
I have used Prima patterned papers, canvas, flowers, lace & trim, bling, alphas, and flocked rub-ons.

A little bit shabby

I haven't played over at Let's Get Shabby for ages so it was so nice to get some time to get messy and girly with their new challenge. The brief was image based and needed to include paint and flowers so this is what I came up with.

Some yummy Prima flowers and lace, Ranger crackle paint, Kaiser bling, and I have added some sparkle to the title with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam. The gorgeous hatpins are from Carol at Tattered Inspirations.

Thanks so much for dropping by :-)

Almond Blossom by Vincent Van Gogh.....

..... was the challenge over at Artastic. I did this 8x8 canvas as a response to some stuff that's been going on here of late....
I have used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Glam and Glaze with a touch of Tim Holtz Distress Stain and a Crafters Workshop template.
It says - In nature there are neither rewards or punishments - there are consequences.

He Rox!

The challenge over at Scrap the Boys this month was to use household/family ephemera on your layout, I went with some stones from around the yard to put on this page of Ed and his rock collection. I took the opportunity to use up some scraps too and have Glimmer Mist-ed the Tim Holtz pp as a background.

Thanks so much for dropping by :-)

PI Blog Hop

Welcome to the Paper Issues Blog Hop :-D

Read right to the bottom of this post for a fabulous giveaway of some of my favourite things!
The theme is Tree-huggers so I thought I'd share with you a couple of projects on wood. This first one was done recently for the Tattered Angels blog, A Kaisercraft wood frame with lots of lovely layers for the background. I have used a variety of leftover patterned papers, burlap from Canvas Corp, and findings from Tim Holtz, Kaisercraft, 7Gypsies, Pink Paislee, and Prima, all covered with lashings of Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam.

The next one is from a while back when we did a wood theme on the Tattered Angels blog. I used Glimmer Mist, Glaze, and Glam to paint this sweet little cabinet that a friend gave me, it has since been auctioned to raise money for Queensland Flood Relief.

 And because I'm really a scrapbooker at heart and don't want to leave a post without a page, here's one using the new Bush Christmas foiled paper from Alison Ellis Design.

If you made it this far here's your reward. I have gathered together some of my favourite crafty things, papers, a Crafters Workshop Template, a Prima Mistable canvas sheet, and of course a bottle of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in one of my absolute favourite shades. All you have to do is be a follower of my blog and leave me a comment to let me know you visited and at the end of the bloghop a random person will win it all, yay!

 Now head on over and visit Amy, the next stop on the hop!

Or go have a peek at what Cassie has in the ETSY shop. Use the coupon HOP25 at checkout to get a full 25% discount all the way through Sunday :-D

Tattered Angels and Mistables

This month we are playing with lots of different products on the market that can be misted and painted. There is some awesome work up on the Tattered Angels blog, well worth checking out, very inspiring!
I had a play with some resist papers, heaps of fun and made by lots of companies these days; Pink Paislee, Tim Holtz, Prima, just to name a few. On this page I used Firefly Chalkboard mist for the background, Inchworm Chalkboard mist for the Tattered Angels crepe ribbon, Graphite Glimmer Mist for the Maya Rd Organza Ribbon Trim which started off white. The patterned papers are from Pink Paislee's Daily Junque range.

In the next layout I have used a canvas banner from Canvas Corp. and Prima flower and length of lace with some Tim Holtz tissue tape. Glimmer mist colours include Sand, Tattered Leather, and Aquamarine, and I have used some Hayride Glimmer Glam for the flower and the butterfly trail. The lace is coloured with Inchworm Chalkboard mist and a dusting of Patina Glimmer Mist.

I love Autumn

It's so true, it is my absolute favourite time of year.
This page I did for Stuck Sketches using a Crafters Workshop template with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, and the new Tim Holtz Distress Stains, I really love the splotch effect!

He's da master!

I feel like it's been ages since I had a chance to play with any challenge blogs so when I had a scrap-weekend away recently I did just that, what fun!

This one here is for Scrap the Boys, it also fits in with the current Paper Issues theme :-)
Thanks so much for dropping by.

AED with Issues!

Camp Mojo

Well I didn't take many photos and they were all on my phone so they are pretty shabby and I'm not going to share as plenty of other people have already. That said, I did an amazing class with Tattered Angels Design Team-mate Sherry Mendoza, it really got the mojo flowing and got my hands so colourful and glimmery. I love it!

Brissy, June

It's taking me a while to clear my desk at the moment, things are coming in quicker than I can deal with them so this is from my trip to Brisbane for the Scrapbook Expo back in June. I did a class with my good buddy Louise Nelson, she's an awesome artist, and was teaching there for Scrapapple online shop using lots of lovely Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. It looks a bit different from the original but the techniques are the same and it was a brilliant class, I would highly recommend Lou as a teacher!

Following the gorgeous Sharmaine's lead, I too have given the Great Storyboard Challenge a go....
I used the painted background technique and used my journalling as a design feature.

Be sure to put an entry in, the prizes are fab!

New DT :-)

Hello peeps in Blogland.

Pink Paislee taster

This month over at the Tattered Angels blog we have been showcasing the Color Connection with Pink Paislee. I got to work with the superb 'Daily Junque' paper range and matching paints: Dark Denim and Aquamarine Glimmer mists, Pewter Glimmer Glaze and Organic Garden Glimmer Glam, a more perfect match for versatility you haven't seen.
 I am so impressed with how it is possible to get any look from sweet girly to filthy boyish, arty, eclectic or grunge out of this team of products. Seriously I could work with them for months and have a different look each time. I created way more than the required 3 projects because I just couldn't stop myself (and I did try!).
 My TA blog post is due tomorrow so you'll have to go and check it out, but until then here is a grungey taste of what I've been up to.

Thansk so much for popping in and be sure to go visit here tomorrow :-)

Well it's been a long time since I've been to a wedding but that was the theme over at Tattered Angels for May so I had lots of fun putting this Bridal Fan together, you can find instructions for this and other fabulous wedding ideas from the Design Team here

 and here is my gorgeous girl modelling for me, ain't she sweet!
This is a page I did using the Tattered Angels paints and Wedding palette, such pretty colours together. I also used my new Cuttlebug to emboss the cardstock music under the photo, seriously, I love the Cuttlebug!!
